Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I found this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffle recipe a few months ago but have not been game enough to try it until last night. I can't even remember where I found it.

Anyway it's a very naughty recipe but still good. It is for those days when you say to hell with it I want chocolate!

The chocolate coating has a lovely crunch to it when you bite through it to get to the cookie dough centre. They are so fun to eat. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Makes: 18-24

1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon bi-card soda (baking soda)
1/2 cup margarine, room temperature
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tbsp soy milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
200 gms dark chocolate for coating

Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add soymilk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.

Form dough into round balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

Place in freezer and chill for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate coating in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water or as package directions.

Using a fork or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls into chocolate to cover. Tap fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to lined baking trays. Chill until set.

Store, in an airtight container in the fridge though good luck making them last that long!
